In Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, Cloud and his friends are freed from the city of Midgar and led outside. Lucy and Tam recently played some of the game and discuss the changes to the combat system, including playing as new characters like Red XIII and Sephiroth and the new synergy abilities.
In 2020, Square Enix achieved what many thought was impossible by remastering Final Fantasy 7, delivering a game that reimagined the beloved RPG classic with modern gameplay. But we all knew that the story of Cloud, Tifa, Barrett and Aerith would inevitably have to break out of the confines of Midgar and venture beyond, and that in doing so Square Enix would have to address narrative moments that have become such iconic elements of the culture Video games have shown that even people who haven’t played Final Fantasy 7 understand its implications.
Tamoor and Lucy recently tried out two parts of the game: “The Fated Mt. Nibel Mission” and “The Open Wilds of Junon”, and discuss the narrative changes and additions they experienced, the new additions to the gameplay and their thoughts whether the world of the game will be big or not.
